Portabella Burgers

22 Jun


Justin loves mushrooms, and we’ve had some burgers in the freezer leftover from Wylin’s birthday party. The burgers were really tasty, made from meat ground with our kitchenaid meat grinder. I have been dying to eat them again, so I thought it would be a good time to try this.

It doesn’t really get more simple than this. Make your burgers. Replace the bun with a baked portabella mushroom cap. Then you have a nice low carb burger. Perfect!

For the “portabella bun”

What you need

  • Portabella mushroom caps
  • Olive oil
  • Onion powder
  • Garlic powder
  • McCormick’s Montreal steak seasoning
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Scrape the gills and stem from the bottom of the mushroom cap with a spoon. Justin did a MUCH better job of this than me. Mine did not look pretty at all. Just make sure you are very gentle with the mushroom, or it will all fall apart like mine did. Lesson learned.
Drizzle some olive oil on both sides of the mushroom and rub some of the seasoning on it.
Bake for about 15 minutes. I sprinkled some cheese on top of mine for the last 2-3 minutes.
For the burgers
  • 1 lb of ground beef (I combined chuck and sirloin)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese
  • A few drops of soy sauce
  • A squeeze of barbecue sauce 
  • McCormicks Montreal steak season

Combine all the ingredients together, mix thoroughly, form your burgers, and cook to your desired temperature.
